Preliminary examination of the 43rd Bangladesh Civil Service (BCS) will be held on August 6, Bangladesh Public Service Commission (BPSC) said yesterday.
The test will be held simultaneously in Dhaka, Chattogram, Rajshahi, Barishal, Khulna, Sylhet, Rangpur and Mymensingh centres, said a press release from BPSC.
Information regarding the exam venue, seat plan and other instructions will be available on www.bpsc.gov.bd.
On January 27, BPSC extended the deadline till 6pm on March 31 for applicants, from January 31.
This was announced after University Grants Commission requested BPSC last week to extend the deadline, as many final semester students would not be able to apply for one of the most sought-after recruitment exams as their university exams could not take place during the pandemic.
In a letter, UGC said all educational institutions have been closed since March 18 last year. As such, honour's and master's exams were not held as per schedule.
Through the general 43rd BCS, 1,814 officials will be recruited, including 300 in public administration, 100 in police, 25 in foreign services, and 843 in teaching.
